Title:The federal auditor-general of Nigeria: the role and constraints of a public financial watchdog
Author:Ola, R.O.F.
Periodical:Quarterly Journal of Administration
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:audit offices
Abstract:The office of the Auditor-General is traditionally a respected one in many lands. Known by different designations in various places, this paper discusses the professional integrity and public standing usually required of its incumbent. It traces the development of the office in the Nigerian Federal Goverment from colonial times to the present military administration. The duties and the constraints of the office in Nigeria are examined as well as its special responsibility to point out to the public any wastes of public funds it considers improper. A critical appraisal of how to improve the structure, functioning and performance of the institution is examined. Notes.
